Sanandaj (Sina), Iranian Kurdistan, —  Two Kurdish activists have been condemned to death in a closed court hearing in the Iranian Kurdish city of Sanandaj.

The activists, Anwar Hossein Panahi and Arsalan Oliaii,

A total of seven Kurdish activists have been sentenced to death for the same reason, including the two journalists, Hiwa Boutimar and Adnan Hassanpour.

In a report released last week the human rights organisation, Amnesty International expressed concern about the increased repression of Kurdish Iranians, particularly human rights defenders.

The report cited examples of religious and cultural discrimination against the estimated 12 million Kurds who live in Iran.

“We urge the Iranian authorities to take concrete measures to end any discrimination and associated human rights violations that Kurds, indeed all minorities in Iran, face,” Amnesty said in its report.

“Kurds and all other members of minority communities in Iran, men, women and children, are entitled to enjoy their full range of human rights.”
